but first, what is a jade roller?

“a paint roller–type tool for the face made from solid jade stone. it’s been said to decrease puffiness and under-eye circles, & minimize the look of fine lines. to use it, apply gentle pressure while rolling the tool from the center of your face in upward and outward motions.”

  1. if you put in in the fridge at night & then roll your face when you first wake up, it is SO refreshing! i like to wash my face then roll, then put on my oils + moisturizers as they say the jade roller primes your skin to better absorb product.

  2. it’s like a super affordable daily facial. the jade is a cool surface that’s smooth & allows you to access into muscles and tissues with a gentle pressure. it’s definitely the easiest way to pamper yourself regularly!

  3. it reduces redness + puffiness! when i wake up my eyes are always pretty puffy + my skin is more red in tone than not. i can definitely see a notable difference in my eye puffiness after i roll the little end over my under eyes!

  4. for me, i honestly feel like this little smooth, clean, pressurized stone being rolled over my face on a daily basis has helped with breakouts. i’ve seen far fewer blemishes pop up since i’ve started!

  5. it’s the perfect pairing with your favorite serum. i like to use a serum like orchid oil & roll it all over. it helps to evenly distribute it onto clean skin!

some products i've been LOVING that are pictured below:

1. the urban decay sin afterglow highligher palette! it's so perfect for summer, i've been using it every day! i love the shiny sin color; one of my favorite highlighters i've ever used.

2. chanel matte liquid lip color –– if you know me, you know i'm not a lipstick girl. i basically just wear dr. bronners chap stick every day of my life because i have never found anything i love or that is neutral enough! but i have this chanel lip color in several colors & it's more like a lip stain. it's super easy to work with & you only need a little bit to smudge around for a soft pop of color!

3. the too faced hangover primer -- this stuff smells like a pina colada! & it keeps my makeup on all day. it's a smooth, non-sticky primer & it feels weightless. love this stuff & so glad i found it!

4. laura mercier setting powder -- i heard in a youtube video that this was used on a group of bridesmaids & that after a whole wedding day full of warm weather & dancing, everyones' makeup till looked amazing, so i was sold! it goes on so naturally & i like to apply it with a damp beauty blender for even more of a natural finish.


hope you have a happy monday!
